Stunning 18k Gold Lava Cameo Of Athena:
Offered is a fabulous museum quality antique cameo, probably Neapolitan, hand carved in very high relief from pale colored lava to depict the goddess Athena or Minerva. It is mounted in a fine and heavy quality solid 18K gold setting for wear as a pin, of which the pin is detachable, the c clasp is hinged and the top has a folding bail. The fine detail portrayed in the carving is breathtaking, and the mount is exceptional. Athena is shown wearing an Etruscan style necklace and earrings. This is an Italian cameo from circa 1860/70. Not marked. It is quite large at 2 1/4" by 2".
